A Navy recruiter fatally shot his wife at their Texas home Thursday and wounded an agent with Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) before he was later killed by Texas authorities, officials said.

The there was a shooting when two NCIS agents spoke with a woman about domestic violence issues with her husband at a home in the Houston suburb of Atascocita, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who described the incident as “something out of a movie.”

The woman was about 30 years old with two small children aged 1 and 3. Both children were at home at the time. The couple had other children who were in school at the time of the murder.

As the agents were leaving, the husband came into the home and shot his wife, who was holding one of the children, Gonzalez said. He then picked up one of the children, ran outside and exchanged gunfire with the agents, authorities said.
